The official #1 most powerful video player to customize, analyze and optimize FLV, MP4 and YouTube videos is now available on WordPress.
So I tried this plugin and compared to others I am not that impressed. I'm using the Brid Video Easy Publish plugin which is easier to use and also allows for advertisements, which this doesn't.
My biggest complaint with this plugin is the spam emails. What prompted this 1 star review was 6 video stats emails within an hour and a half. This is despite not having videos at all on the system, because I'm no longer using.
If you want a better review make it a better plugin with the ability for people to also add advertisements if they choose (pre-roll and overlay). But most importantly, stop the non stop spam emails. As I was typing this I got another identical spam email, making it 7.
Use Brid. No spam, simple to use, free and also allows ads.

Well, I was looking for a way to embed video into my WordPress pages and, after some limited research, this seemed to be it. I downloaded the 'free' plugin and then paid the $67 to get the 'full' version.
Unfortunately my account didn't get upgraded after the purchase so this required that I contact support (support not bad - they got back to me within the 48 hour deadline that was promised).
The plugin didn't work very well for me at all. I'm only running a simple theme and this was the only plugin installed (apart from Akismet) so not sure what the problem was.
I probably would have contacted support again had it not been for the inordinate amount of spam marketing crap I received from these people! I was appalled. Very soon after buying the plugin I began to get bombarded with emails trying to sell me other things. I 'unsubscribed' from every email but they kept coming!!
The Good - timely support (hence 2 stars instead of 1)
The Bad - the plugin didn't work for me
The Ugly - a torrent of unsolicited spam emails and 'marketing' junk.
My advice is avoid this one and try Easy Video Player or one of the other plugins available.
I've since (after a few emails) got a refund and I'm off to download EVP now and (hopefully) get a much less stressful experience.
Dumb interface, and a complete waste of time!
Since I use WordPress for 99% of my sites this plugin will now allow me to use the Vooplayer with ease. For me this was the missing piece.
Tested plugin on couple of videos and worked flawless. Have many, many plugins on my site and it even plays along nicely with all of them.
Love the ability to insert the shortcode right from editor too!
Thanks for building this plugin and providing it for free.
Doesn't work. Enter the beginning url of a self-hosted video address and the player just sits there just trying to load the preview.
Voo Player is one of the best players I found to optimize & customize my videos. It's even better now since it's a plugin and can synchronizes with my online Voo Player account. John & Bill at Voo Player have great support as well.
